‘The Resurrection of Gavin Stone’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
The Resurrection of Gavin Stone – “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone tells the story of a former child star turned washed-up and troubled actor.
After receiving a 200-hour community service sentence, Gavin Stone (Brett Dalton), pretends to be a Christian so he can play Jesus in a mega-church Easter production in order to fulfill his hours of service.
Along the way, he reconnects with his past and builds upon his faith to discover that his most important role is far away from the shining lights of Hollywood.”
This was a wonderful film!
I truly enjoyed this movie, and the whole transformation. Gavin is such a relatable character! Not just to other Christians, but more importantly I think, to those struggling with their faith or feeling at all lost from God.
This film really hits home – makes you think… What does it truly mean to be Christian? When was your “moment”? It’s easy to just “go through the motions”. kids born into Strong Christian homes are basically doing that right up until their “moment”, that moment when God really truly speaks to them and touches their soul completely and their eyes are truly opened! To truly follow God, and to know Him, is much more than just physically attending church or Bible study.
Gavin is tempted by an opportunity that he thought he wanted before accepting God – and that choice…means everything. Can you think of a time when you were given a choice between something you truly wanted and choosing God?
This is a film we will definitely be bringing home to share with the rest of the family.
